Kinetic East is an charming short video of south east Scotland in summer produced by award-winning film maker Walid Salhab, Lecturer in Media Practice at Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh.
East Lothian has some of the most stunning beaches and beautiful scenery in Scotland. In celebration of the long-awaited beautiful summer, Walid wanted to capture and share some of his favourite coastal spots in East Lothian, as well as some of the hidden treasures that are on offer in Scotland’s south east. He particularly loves the expanse of Ravensheugh Beach, the nature reserve at Aberlady, Dunbar harbour, and the buzz of North Berwick. In addition, this film includes footage of Peebles, Cramond Island at sunset, views from North Queensferry and his all-time favourite – the ruins of St Antony’s Chapel at Arthur’s Seat, Edinburgh.
Walid’s time-lapse/stop motion technique captivated an international audience when he first released ‘Kinetic Edinburgh I’ in September 2012. This was followed by his stunning portrayal of Edinburgh in wintertime ‘Kinetic Edinburgh II’ which achieved over 3 million hits on You Tube. Walid perfected his unique time-lapse/stop motion technique during the production of his Kinetic Edinburgh films. He is now applying the technique to a short film ‘Avaritia’ which will be available some time later this year. The trailer for Avaritia can be viewed here vimeo.com/56547987.
Walid hopes to provide a fresh perspective on well-known beauty spots, to inspire people to seek out hidden gems and encourage people to appreciate the natural beauty of Scotland.
